Special Projects Committee Seeks Volunteers
At the MPINCC Annual Conference and Expo on Thursday, February 21 there will be a range of educational workshops for all meeting professionals. We have numerous volunteer slots open for these workshops. This is a great opportunity to be a part of the MPINCC team while learning about the industry's tools and trends. All volunteers must be current MPINCC members and registered for ACE.
Volunteer roles needed for each of the Educational Workshops:
Special Projects needs (2) room monitors and (2) badge scanners for each workshop. You are encouraged to sign up for one or more volunteer slots.
- Room Monitors - volunteers will confirm that speakers have all the right equipment, distribute handouts, serve as timekeeper and microphone runners, if needed.
- Badge Scanners - volunteers will be trained on the badge equipment onsite. Tasks are greet and direct attendees, stand at workshop doors and scan badges.
If you are interested in volunteering, please respond to Lucinda Mendoza, CMP, Special Projects Chair, with the following information by Thursday, February 7:
Thank you for your assistance and support!
- Your full name, title, company, email address, and the phone number to reach you.
- The volunteer role (room monitor or badge scanner) and time slots you prefer.
MPINCC Community Involvement Committee Cell Phone Drive at ACE 2013
Did you know that old, unwanted cell phones are valuable? That they can “magically” be turned into money to help support life-saving programs, such as Next Door Solutions? At this year’s Annual Conference & Expo, support MPINCC’s CSR Initiative by collecting as many used, unwanted cell phones as you can, and dropping them off at the MPINCC/Cell Phone Drive booth (Tabletop #18) on the expo floor. There is no limit to the number we can accept. No matter how old or broken it is, as long as it’s a cell phone we can accept it. We can also accept ‘smartphones’ such as iPhones and Androids. Donated phones will be delivered to Next Door Solutions, and recycled in an environmentally-safe and responsible manner, with proceeds benefiting essential support programs, including emergency shelter. The MPINCC Community Involvement committee thanks you for supporting life-saving programs.
Next Door Solutions seeks “to end domestic violence in the moment and for all time.” Next Door promotes safety for battered women and their children through emergency shelter; multiple points of entry for victims; individuals, system and institutional advocacy; crisis intervention; education for victims and the community; and the changing of community norms through prevention activities.
